The 9th Annual Kiwanis Holiday Lights event will be held November 27 – December 31, 2020 in Mankato, Minnesota. This celebration of holiday lights for the Greater Mankato area and region builds on past traditions and promotes the communities we serve, while raising non-perishable food donations for those in need. Admission is free for all vehicles and walkers. Food and cash donations are accepted and appreciated. * Please note we only collect cash and food donations within the lights display area in Sibley Park.  No other organizations or individuals have been approved to collect donations on behalf of Kiwanis Holiday Lights.

This year’s attractions include a display of over 1.8 million LED lights, animated lights, skating rink and warming house, horse-drawn wagon rides, Santa Claus, live reindeer, ice sculpting and more!
